Hi, I have a question regarding the tires: did you use the original wheels? I have mag wheels on my GN and the width of the front wheel is only 1.85. Does a 3.5 tire fit?

They're the stock wheels.  The 4.0's fit fine.  I'll be trying 4.5's eventually.

Can't really find it anywhere in the thread.

How did you attach the Emgo shorty? did you have it welded on?

Used an exhaust clamp.  You'll also need to cut slits in the end of the muffler to give the clamp something to "clamp" down on.

We need a vid of that new exhaust!

I'm trying to decide on one for my GN400. I want it to sound like a 400 or 450f(dirt bike) if even possible..

Can you post a closer picture of this for reference?

Weird question but how tall are you? I keep sitting on my bike (it's just a frame haha) and I keep worrying I'm too big for it lol!

I'm 6'3"...same build as you. Does it feel too small?
